There is a reason why I completely agree with Sadguru Jaggi. He happens to talk sense. No other person I have met or heard or read has ever made sense to me like he does. Maybe that is why I went to him as a Shishya. This interview explains why.
The only problem I have is the way the interview was conducted and the childishness of the interviewer. Last night I happened to listen to PBS and Charlie Rose conducting an interview. He was talking to a South African singer and then to an British author who had written a book about her Grandmother (“The Bolter”), who was a rebel of a kind. She married 5 times and at one time in Kenya was managing a farm and used to have wild sex parties in her house with other Brits. The kind of questions that Rose asked – sparse as they were – were amazing. They showed his intellect. Shekhar Gupta unfortunately comes across as a joker. He has no idea of the subject he is discussing.. he has no insight whatsoever… and is not even paying attention to what Sadguru is saying at times. How I wish if this interview was conducted by some one who was more insightful and had a bit of intellect or at the least a half-decent research team t o prep him up!
Anyways… enjoy the thoughts of Sadguru that come through.. and of his childhood.. its very interesting. I heard about his childhood for the first time.
